    I am converting my computer to linux 11 and I have to use mozilla firefox as a internet browser. But GM truck club's site is not wanting to run in properly firefox. I have to use internet explorer to run it but the operating system Linux dosent run internet explorer I dont think. Do you have any suggestios so that I can stay on GM truck club? Thanks

    What version of FF are you using? As far as I know just about all of them format quite well on here.

    I have an Acer aspire 5517 running Windows 7. I am converting to Linux mint 11. I currently have windows explorer and mozilla on this laptop. When I run GMTC in mozilla it wont let me scroll all of the way down through alot of the post. It just doesnt load all of the pages on forum posts. When I switch back to Internet explorer it works fine.

    Hmm, is it zoomed in at all? I've done that beore, been in FF and it was like at 200% zoom? Just something silly to check.

    I'm on windows Vista and I use Chrome mostly, but I check Firefox and also IE9 and IE8 to make certain it's all loading up.

    Maybe try to clear the cache, all that good stuff? I've made a bunch of changes over the last few months and you may have cached something that was broken and that's what your system is still trying to load in FF?

    Maybe javascript is turned off in FF or cookies or something like that? Maybe it's got a built-in firewall or something?
